Hey all,
I mentioned a while back that I was starting up a new podcast, Radio Free Gamer, on 8bitx.com. I'll feature VGM (original soundtracks, remixes, arrangements, or music related to video games) that can be downloaded for free on the internets. My goal is for this show to become a source for people to learn more about the many and varied VGM artists on the net.

To that end I need some online sources for free VGM as described above. Anything goes, as long as it's related to video games and is free to download. Please either respond to this thread with links, PM me, or email me at radiofreegamer@gmail.com. Please send anything fitting the description, I need as many sources as I can possibly get. If you yourself are a VGM artist and would like to be on the show, let me know. I'd also like to do some Skype interviews, as those are always fun.

I aim to start the show in June. Until then, you can check out the other shows on 8bitx.com. My show will be available as a podcast, and will also be aired regularly on 8bitx.com. I'll post again when the show is available. Thanks!

(latest)

This week Radio Free Gamer will interview MAGFest PR Director Nick Marinelli! We'll also give away 2 free passes to MAGFest! If you want the skinny on how to win, check out the forum post at 8BitX. As always, we're live from 7-9PM Eastern on Wednesday. If you guys have any questions about the contest, or if there's anything you want me to discuss with Nick during our interview, please leave them here or email them to me at radiofreegamer@gmail.com. Thanks!

Kind of a shotgun approach, as the search isn't 100% free releases here, but try this for at least a decent cut of legally free digital release VGM albums: http://vgmdb.net/sea...esults&id=28003

Hey all,
My new podcast for free VGM airs next Wednesday, June 3rd at 7PM on 8bitx.com! The goal of this podcast is to introduce people to the many VGM artists on the internets, particularly those who offer their music free to download. I will have music, listener interaction via chat and Skype, and interviews with VGM pplz such as:
-The UMD Gamer Symphony Orchestra
-Larry Oji (Liontamer)
-Mattias Häggström (Another Soundscape)
-Andrew Luers (OA)
-Shinobininja
And many more!

Tune in live Wednesday June 3rd at 7PM, or download later as a podcast from 8bitx.com! I will have the exact address for the podcast in a bit, so stay tuned! Also, if anyone would like to point me towards some free VGM, would like to be interviewed, or has an idea for the show (perhaps a nifty segment or way to improve interaction between the audience and me) drop me a line at radiofreegamer@gmail.com! Also, if you're on twitter, follow justinj212 for updates!

Thanks,
-Justin Johnston

Hey all,
My new podcast themed around free VGM will air live tomorrow night at 7PM, only on 8bitx.com! It will then be available to download as a podcast from 8bitx.com. Each week I will feature spotlights on VGM artists, with music and exclusive interviews! This week I will showcase the UMD Gamer Symphony Orchestra with recordings from their recent concert and an interview with some of the head honchos there.

Anyway, I hope this will be the next big thing: an outlet for new VGM artists to promote themselves and for people to learn about and download some of the amazing VGM that's scattered around the internets. So please help spread the word, and tomorrow at 7PM point your browsers at 8bitx.com!

That's 7PM EST, as I was asked to clarify. I suppose being on the East Coast almost my entire life has left me with some sort of time zone bias :)

Hey all,
This week on Radio Free Gamer we will feature an interview with Andrew Luers (OA), project director for Final Fantasy IV "Echoes of Betrayal, Light of Redemption." Not only will we have an exclusive interview, but we will also play two full-length preview tracks! The only place to get them (until the album releases) is on Radio Free Gamer at 8bitx.com! Listen live Wednesday at 7PM EST or download the podcast on Friday. Both links are in my signature.

Radio Free Gamer is a weekly internet radio show bringing you the latest free video game music! Every week we spotlight a VGM artist with exclusive interviews, tracks, and announcements! The show airs live Wednesdays at 7PM EST and is available as a podcast (updated Fridays). Learn more at http://8bitx.com/.

For those of you who have been paying attention: yes, this interview was also featured on my old radio show, 8-Bit Radio. But that was before I graduated from UMD and got kicked off the school radio station. This is a different show now. Good job spotting it though, you get a virtual pat on the back.

Hey all, under the suggestion of OA I have decided to make one thread for all my posts related to Radio Free Gamer rather than make a new thread every week. Please mark this thread for weekly updates on Radio Free Gamer, your source for FREE video game music and interviews!

This week on RFG, Jeriaska (writer for Nobuooo, Gamasutra, and GameSetWatch) joins us to discuss a roundtable he held with four independent game composers. This leads to an interesting conversation about music in independent games. Also discussed is his monthly series of video interviews with VGM artists.

Also, a very special Win of the Week for all you Valve fans and a preview of Otakon 2009 (or in other words, I tell you how I plan to distribute the 2,000 business cards I just ordered!).

Listen live Wednesday July 8th at 7PM EST only on 8bitx.com! The podcast will be updated Friday, or thereabouts. Links are in my sig. See you then!

I personally am happy to do an interview, and in the process we're unveiling 2 tracks from the project in their entirety - you all will probably love them, and we have more where they come from!

Thanks to everyone who went to Otakon! I met a ton of people who hopefully will become active members of the 8bitx community, and I had a great time at the panels, concerts, and every other bit of craziness that goes on at Otakon. I'll talk about that for a bit on the show.

As for this week, we will feature the new Final Fantasy 4 remix project: Echoes of Betrayal, Light of Redemption! We've been waiting a while for this album, and it was certainly worth the wait! Check out the show Wednesday at 7PM EST, and join the chat via the link on the homepage (hopefully some of the artists who worked on the album will be joining us). Check it out, only at 8bitx.com!
